    You’re very welcome. Here is a video of the enclosures. We go around the sides with a couple ratchet straps and clamp the fronts to the backs with parallel clamps.

    Murphy's Law, got shipping notification it'll be here in 2 days.

    Got a chance to sit down and get the core 6 boards cut last night, was pretty happy with the results (my 4 lengthwise boards are well less than 1/16" variance. Yes, such a simple thing to be excited about, but Hey! I don't do this often). I'll get them assembled next and measure up for my perimeter boards.

    Whenever you can it's best to cut (or any other machining) multiples of any like components with the same set-up.

    In your case of cutting 4) 2x4s to length that would go something like this (assuming you are using a miter saw)...

    - Cut one end square
    - Index that square end to a positive stop you have set-up for the desired length
    - Make second cut to desired length*

    * If you are as anal as I can be, I usually set my initial stop slightly long, then creep up to the final length.

    If you follow this process each piece will be as close as possible to being identical.

    Re: Question for our in-house woodworker peeps

    Unfortunately I don't have a great setup for supporting the wood at work, so I'm working with the Miter Saw on the ground - While it'd be great to block off from the other end, my process has been as follows:

    - I Executed a test cut to be able to place a tape mark 6" exactly back from the newly cut end. This allows me to mark wood at my cut length, backtrack 6" and have a rock solid place to line up my length cut. The saw I'm borrowing has the blade lights, but they're not working.
    - Find necessary support setup for that board
    - Cut one end square
    - Mark board for length, add 6" mark.
    - Cut
    - Measure, rejoice.

    Re: Question for our in-house woodworker peeps

    Got the core support frame dry fit last night. Cross corner measurements are within 1/8", not sure what standard room for error is for square. I'm guessing an Amazon bed frame probably wouldn't be that close.

    Hopefully getting the rest of my boards cut tonight.
